- I hope your lo is doing better.Beemama
- going from one to two children was so hard for me too - harder than 2 to 3, or even 3 to 4. I had daily meltdowns, it took FOREVER to get out of the house... it gets easier though, trust me.
We too have low income, large student loan debt, too much stuff, not enough support, dh works long hours and is looking for a new job, we are definitely moving somewhere
in 2 months - I finally realized that it's ok to slack in some areas, to let the kids run wild for a day or sit in front of a video so that I can have time to rest and recuperate and find myself. Otherwise I spend the whole day stressing about cleaning up, getting meals on the table, gettting the kids to do their lessons balh blah blah and there is never ANY time for ME, WHich makes for a very unhappy mama. Which makes for a very unhappy household in general.
I just have to brag for a moment:
Yann has learned how to say "coocoo"! Ok, it comes out more like "ah-goock-goo", with lots of spit (he's a very drooly bird!), but he is definitely trying to say coocoo! DH started saying coocoo to him whenever he saw him a few days ago (it's a French thing), and last night I was singing a song about a cuckoo bird and Yann started repeating coocoo after me. Then last night, when I sat him up so he could burp after nursing, he looked straight at DH, furrowed his brow, moved his lips around a bit and said it very clearly, then gave DH a big smile. DH said coocoo back and Yann repeated it several times. SOOO cute!
I am waiting for Mighty-mama's miracle thread too
. I know Jessica can do this with her own inner strength, and the love of her family and friends, and the healing energy being sent to her from around the world. I know she will beat this, and stick around to see her boys grow up!
I ordered a gift for her boys and had it sent to their address - my heart is just aching for them.
A very good day to all of you, full of peace and joy!
